Jack Forman used to be a well respected man at Media Tronics. That was before he got fired for discovering an internal scandal. Now Jack is a stay at home dad to his three children while his wife works long hours for a nanorobotics company. Jack’s wife, Julia, says her team is working on some revolutionary imaging technology out of a plant in Nevada. But Julia’s long hours and strange behavior look more like and affair and less like long hours to Jack. When Media Tronics offers Jack a job consulting the work his wife and her team have been doing in Nevada, he jumps at the chance. Once he gets there he recognizes several of the people there because they all used to work for him. Jack soon realizes something more is happening. When they admit that a few swarms of the tiny cameras they have been working on have gotten loose and adapted and began to develop a mind of their own, Jack believes he can wrangle the tiny cameras back and destroy them so they will stop making people sick and killing animals. But Jack still has no idea what he is up against in this Nevada desert. Prey by Michael Crichton is nothing short of creepy. It is an eerie cautionary tale, much like Jurassic Park. Told in classic Crichton technological style, Prey should be a shoo in on your must read list.
